Meet my new friend Ani!!

Hi everybody - this is Ani - my new friend. She has 6 other friends - but I keep taking her away from her friends - because she's MY favorite friend!! She and I were sitting out on the back deck and decided to take a picture together and show you how well we look together!!

This was the first RBL that I purchased with the sale that was advertised a few weeks ago.
If you missed out on it that means you probably didn't like the nude sheer colors they were being offered or you just didn't know about the sale. As for me - I didn't have many nudes or sheer nudes in my stash so this was a perfect set for me. There were 7 neutrals for $50. That's a lot you say - well considering Resuce Beauty Lounge goes for $18 a bottle - this was a steal for me at $7 a bottle (OPI costs more than that!).
Well, Ani is very shy - she was as sheer as lace curtains - so she needed an undercoat of an opaque nude. Here i used 2 coats of OPI Samoan Sands. Then i applied 2 coats of Ani and VNL (Visible Nail Line) was not an issue and Ani shown like the star she is. Ani has a very slight shimmer that gives her enough swagger to be interesting, but yet subtle enough to stay out of the lime light.
I LOVE Ani - and I'll be letting her strut her stuff on those days when I want to say - yes, I am pretty and polished.
P.S. Ani is still available at Rescue Beauty Lounge - but she has gone back to her regular price of $18. She is on the discontinued block - so when she's gone, she's gone, I'm sorry to say.
So, what do you think? Is she pretty enough to take to the ball or will you leave her on the shelf and have her collecting dust?


  1. I can't wear nude/sheers but boy do they look hot on you!

  2. Thank you Evil Angel!! Looking hot is always a good thing!! Appreciate the love!!

  3. Looks so pretty on your nails. They were too light for me. I don't like sheers either. I did see it and was tempted but I didn't fall for them.

  4. Oh ms. Lucy - I'm sorry to hear that. Sheers are great to wear as long as you put an opaque nude color underneath it so the sheerness of it doesn't show as...well, as sheer!! Thanks, though!!
